For the past 32 years, SEARAC has been an active voice for Southeast Asian Americans nationally on issues including immigration reform, education access and health reform. Additionally, we have developed and trained hundreds of Southeast Asian Americans to become advocates empowered to speak for themselves and their communities.

For the second year, we are launching our "Run for SEARAC" fundraiser and asking for your help to make sure that our advocacy work continues! Our runners have been training hard for their races happening from Washington, DC to Long Beach, CA throughout the months of November and December. These runners have generously designated SEARAC as their charity of choice, and as they prepare to race, they want to reach out to you for support! Help them reach their goal of raising $3,000 for SEARAC by December 27th! Donations must be submitted online by 11:59 pm PDT on December 27, 2012.

The Southeast Asia Resource Action Center (SEARAC) wishes to express our deepest condolences to the victims and their families impacted by the shooting that occurred on August 5, 2012 at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek. As an organization that stands in solidarity with other communities in pursuit of understanding and social justice, SEARAC would like to extend support to our Sikh allies during this difficult time. The diversity of America is what makes this country great—and this senseless act shows us that there is much more education needed about the communities that make up America. There is no room for hate.

Washington, DC - A coalition made up of seven leading national aging organizations—the Diverse Elders Coalition—today released a policy report on the economic issues facing vulnerable older people, notably Black elders; Hispanic elders; Asian American and Pacific Islander elders; American Indian and Alaska Native elders; and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) elders. Securing Our Future: Advancing Economic Security for Diverse Elders describes the issues facing elders of color and LGBT elders, who together will represent a majority of older adults in the United States by 2050. The report also offers policy recommendations in several areas key to the well-being of older people, including Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, health care reform, and more.
